If you've been walking around a cool neighborhood in a major city recently, you may have noticed the old Aphex Twin symbol spray-painted on a street corner.
Or maybe you've seen an Aphex Twin blimp hovering above your house.
This is because Richard D. James is about to release Syro, his first new record as Aphex Twin in 13 years, on Sept. 22.
James never stopped making music but didn't bother releasing any of it because, as he told Rolling Stone recently, "it's a real ball-ache." He was also concerned that no one was interested in his music anymore. "I kind of expected [my label] to say, 'No, nobody actually buys any records anymore, mate. Sorry.'"
